Back in mid-July we announced that Cardplayer Lifestyle’s Inaugural Mixed Game Festival will be taking place between October 4-7 at Westgate Las Vegas. Over these last few weeks, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to ensure our first ever live event will truly be a memorable one.

So, I’m proud to hereby announce a number of wonderful EXTRAS that participants in the Mixed Game Festival will be able to enjoy.

Mixed Game Festival extras

While cash games will be technically be running 24/7 in the poker room, each of the festival’s first three days will feature a special “kickoff” event:

At 11am on Monday October 4, Dylan Linde, author of Mastering Mixed Games will be signing copies of his book, available for purchase at a discounted price of $20, with ALL proceeds being donated to charity.*

At 11am on Tuesday October 5, 4-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and World Poker Tour title winner Eli Elezra will be signing copies of his autobiography Pulling the Trigger for a discounted price of $10, with ALL proceeds being donated to charity.*

At 11am on Wednesday October 6, Poker Hall of Famer Linda Johnson and Women in Poker Hall of Famer Jan Fisher will be conducting a Q&A session on “all things mixed games” as well as offering tips and strategies for some of their favorite poker variants.

Moreover, throughout the inaugural Mixed Game Festival, we’ll be giving away lots of FREE swag:

Plus, don’t forget that you still have until the end of the Mixed Game Festival (October 7) to take advantage of our exclusive 25% discount on Upswing Poker’s Mixed Game Mastery course by Jake Abdalla. Be sure to use the promo code: mixedgamefest. Check out the full details of this offer here, as well as our Twitter giveaway.

A number of well known names and faces from the poker industry have also confirmed to me privately that they’ll be popping in to say hi during the festival’s first three days, as well as possibly entering the tournament on the festival’s final day. So be sure to bring your selfie-ready poker faces, as you might be seated next to a poker celebrity!

Finally, if all of that’s not enough for you, don’t forget… the winner of the $200 H.O.R.S.E. tournament to be held at 12pm on Thursday October 7 will also receive a Platinum Pass to the PokerStars Players Championship to be held next year (date TBD) worth approximately $30,000! Registration begins at 10am on Monday October 4 at the Westgate Las Vegas Poker Room.

If you haven’t yet made your travel plans, rooms at Westgate Las Vegas are still available at our exclusive discounted rates of $50/night from October 3-6 and $80/night for October 7 (final price; no additional resort fees!). Make sure that you mention the code ZCLPO21 when calling the hotel to book your room at (888) 999-3836 or (702) 732-5151.

Be sure to spread the word among your mixed game-loving friends, and feel free to be in touch if you have any questions.
